Ignoring everything *but* a list of flies

I was wondering what is the best way to do something that I cannot find 
documentation for (maybe I haven't looked deep enough?).
I want to have cvs keep track of some files in a directory where I will have a 
lot of other files appear.
The problem is that of course I only want CVS to consider the files it keeps 
track of and I want it to ignore all the rest.
This is something similar to what .cvsignore does only not quite: In the 
.cvsignore file I can put sh-style patters for files to be ignored but, since I 
don't know what kind of files will appear in this directory, I want to 
implement a behaviour similar to .cvsignore but where I can say "ignore 
everything except files that match these patterns".
Is there any (standard) way of doing this?
